the Consequences of a Conviction
Theft is when you willingly take possession of another person’s property without their knowledge or consent.
There are many types of theft in the state of Illinois, including:
- Identity theft
- Online theft
- Auto theft
- Retail theft
The more valuable the item stolen, the more severe the consequences. When an item is of a greater value, fines for convicted persons and length of incarceration time becomes larger. Consequently, whether the charge is filed as a misdemeanor or felony can also hinge upon the worth of the stolen item. Some theft charges are filed in conjunction with more serious physical crimes against a person, such as carjacking and battery. Often, these crimes are charged as felonies. Our criminal defense lawyer in Belleville knows the laws when it comes to theft and can navigate the court system on your behalf.
